As part of its on-going project to increase the quantity and
quality of Wikipedia pages on folklore topics, AFS is offering a lunch-time
Wikipedia workshop at the Annual Meeting on Friday, October 16. The workshop,
led by Virginia Siegel (Kentucky Folklife Program), will feature a basic
tutorial on best practices for creating and editing Wikipedia pages, and will
also serve as an opportunity for participants to make suggestions for the
growth of this initiative. See http://www.afsnet.org/news/252282/Help-Guard-the-Frontline-Find-Out-How-to-Edit-Wikipedia-at-Annual-Meeting.htm
for more information.
Siegel has created a detailed guide
that can be used at home. If you would like to attend the training with the
guide in hand, please download the guide now. You may also download a
Wikipedia guide created by the Wikimedia Foundation, "Editing Wikipedia."
